Fresh start on a new server PDF Print E-mail

We finally closed our Mambo 4.51 site and installed a fresh Joomla 1.5.20 on a new server. There are no new content pages but we removed some broken links and added the lincoln - yahoogroup which I am lurking regularly. Hope you enjoy this site.

As there are tons of sites dealing with Cadillacs and only very few dealing with Lincolns I dare add my 10 cents worth of contribution to the net community.

This 1962 Lincoln Continental Convertible was imported to Germany in 1965. It belonged for four years to a famous German banker, Prinz Johannes von Thurn und Taxis. It was sold in 1969 and changed owner again in 1972. Two months later the license was cancelled. The car was discovered after 26 years in 1998 and restored to the condition as shown. It now has a new top, new leather and some other newer parts such as trunk lid and chrome parts. I purchased the car end of 1999 from the person who did the restoration. The restoration was done well enough to obtain a license for historical (classic) cars, indicated by the additional letter "H" behind the standard license number.

This car is not for sale.


Christophe Barat, a French Lincoln enthusiast, was the first to notice that it currently features a 1964 front grille which differs slightly from 1962's or 1963's.

Doug Dickmann, Hoosier Region Director LCOC, noted that power vent windows (see options below) are a fairly rare option for a 1962. Apparently these were only available in a later part of that year's production.

Moin J. Abbasi, a Lincoln enthusiast from Pakistan, noticed that the wheelcovers are from a 61 Lincoln. In addition the handles for the rear doors were mounted in a wrong way. He also suggested that I should mount the hood ornament turned around, but I am afraid it is bent already as turning it around will just make matters worse. Anyway I was very surprised to learn about at least 9 Lincoln Continentals (1961 .. 1965) in Pakistan.
